Bill was an amazing man. I have so many memories. I had some fun times in the hay field. That man was a worker. Sending love and hugs to Ginny and their kids.

David and I are very sorry to hear of Uncle Bill's passing. He was my favorite Uncle, always joking and laughing. He would always call me, Joanne, my mom's name, because she stayed with them when they all were young. Please tell mom hello and give her a big hug from me!! I sure can't believe he's no longer here! Sending prayers and hugs! 🙏❤
